Elizabeth Pitcairn and Red Violin Return for Weekend of Performances

The Susanville Symphony will again bring world-renowned violinist Elizabeth Pitcairn and her Mendelssohn Red Violin to Susanville for performances March 8th, at 7:00 and March 9th, at 2:00.

The famed Red Violin, which belonged to Felix Mendelssohn, is over three hundred-years old.

Symphony Artistic Director, and Conductor Ben Wade explained that the violin, which is one of the rarest instruments in the world, was owned by the Mendelssohn family and then auctioned off by Sotheby’s.

Pitcairn and the symphony will be performing the Johannes Brahms’ Violin Concerto.

Performances are held at the United Methodist Church on South Lassen Street and tickets are $30 each, available online by clicking here or by visiting the Lassen County Chamber of Commerce office or Margie’s Book Nook.

For more information call the Symphony Hotline at 530.310.8111.

Benefit Performance

The Symphony Society will also be hosting a Benefit Salon Concert featuring Pitcairn and her violin, March 6th at the home of Ray and Denise White in Janesville.

The evening will feature hors d’oeuvres, fine wine and an intimate concert with Elizabeth Pitcairn.

Tickets are $100 each, or $175 for a couple, and all proceeds go to benefit the Susanville Symphony’s youth programs.
